Mahmoud Dahoud, a midfielder for Brighton, has been signed by VfB Stuttgart on a temporary basis for the remainder of the campaign.
Dahoud stated upon entering Stuttgart, “I’m thrilled that the switch to VfB has been successful. Being able to play in the Bundesliga once more is a pleasure. Great fans and a great tradition characterize VfB as a wonderful club. The team performs an amazing and thrilling brand of football. A few members of the U21 national squad are already familiar to me. I’m excited to work with the squad on the pitch and am looking forward to seeing you again at VfB.
After spending six months in England with Brighton, Dahoud is back in the Bundesliga. The 28-year-old failed to get playing time on the South Coast after leaving Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer in the summer to join Brighton.
There is a buy option included in the midfielder’s loan move to Stuttgart, but it is not yet known how much the clause will cost.
Dahoud’s arrival will provide Stuttgart’s young squad the much-needed depth and experience. Dahoud has previous Champions League qualification experience, having done so with both Borussia Dortmund and Mönchengladbach. Additionally, he will provide Stuttgart with a midfield option to either Atakan Karazor or Angelo Stiller, who have been extensively relied upon this season.
Stuttgart defeated RB Leipzig 5-2 over the weekend to move up to third place in the Bundesliga.
